This show keeps me interested, and that's saying a lot the way TV is now. But sometimes I feel like its trying to do too much. I've never met real people who have this many awkward and uncomfortable issues and problems happening to them every day. Their lives are like a train wreck that goes on 24/7/365. Is it so crammed with stuff because it has to be more entertaining than real life, or are there actual people with lives like theirs


Alex and his divorced sister, Valerie, start living under one roof again. Together, they help each other on the crazy world of dating while raising her teenage daughter. It’s an easy going comedy series that explores the dysfunction of a family, dating, divorces, social structures, etc. I recommend it to those who enjoy the indie-dramedy category and are searching for something relatable.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
